INFO
The music on North Star was originally written at the suggestion of Barbara Rose for the film, Mark Di Suvero, Sculptor, directed by Francois de Menil for Parrot Productions Ltd. In most cases, the titles of the selections refer to works by Di Suvero which appear in the film. For the purpose of making a record a certain amount of rearranging and remixing was necessary.

My favourite, Notes on a Scandal OST, but this will certainly extend my collection. Thanx!

Wow!

I'm a huge philip glass fan, but somehow missed this one entirely. And it's fantastic. Mind meltingly so.


Thanks!
